I don't have a problem with them charging for it, but $20 for a boat ride seems a little steep to me... I'd say that $10 would be a good price.

even though I dont like griffon that much, it's actually the best for fireworks, because of all the pauses. Apollo is good too. Last year they did them on the bridge down past bbw and in the fields behind Italy, so you couldnt even ride apollo.
